Om författaren

Nelson Mandela was born Rolihlahla Mandela on July 18, 1918 in Mvezo, South Africa. His teacher later named him Nelson as part of a custom to give all schoolchildren Christian names. He briefly attended University College of Fort Hare but was expelled after taking part in a protest with Oliver visa mer Tambo, with whom he later operated the nation's first black law firm. He eventually completed a bachelor's degree through correspondence courses and studied law at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. He left without graduating in 1948. Mandela was part of the African National Congress (ANC) and spent many years as a freedom fighter. When the South African government outlawed the ANC after the Sharpeville Massacre, he went underground to form a new military wing of the organization. In 1964, he was sentenced to life in prison for sabotage and conspiracy to overthrow the government. Instead of testifying at the trial, he opted to give a speech that was more than four hours long and ended with a defiant statement. While in prison, he received a bachelor's degree in law in absentia from the University of South Africa. In 1990, Mandela was released from prison after 27 years. He served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999, and was the first South African president to be elected in a fully representative democratic election. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize with former South African President F.W. de Klerk in 1993 for transitioning the nation from a system of racial segregation. After leaving the presidency, Mandela retired from active politics, but continued championing causes such as human rights, world peace and the fight against AIDS. He died on November 5, 2013 at the age of 95. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

What a story. Truly a triumph of good over evil. Where do such men find the courage and strength and vision? The world needs many more of the same to set things right.

Organizado pelo líder mundial Nelson Mandela, são encontrados contos tão antigos quanto a África, contados ao redor de fogueiras no final do dia desde tempos imemoráveis, contos herdados dos povos san e khoi, originalmente caçadores e criadores de animais pioneiros, deixados à imaginação daqueles que vieram do mar em grandes embarcações de velas ondeantes.
A obra traz ainda ricas ilustrações que complementam cada um dos contos.

At nearly 800 pages this is LONG! It shows you everything Mandela went through from his childhood in the Thembu tribe to Robbin Island and beyond. It was interesting reading about the apartheid struggle from Mandela’s point of view and learning more than I ever remembered from the news.

Fascinating. If it were physically possible, I'd've read it in one sitting.
